Movenpick Swiss Premium Ice Creams, Average at best!
Well the title is a bit misleading as I have applied the law of averages here where some flavours are excellent while others are hardly worth the money. We had ordered for Espresso Croquant and a Pistachio ice cream. The Pistachio was disappointing as the flavour was too sharp, which probably happens if the ice cream has been in the bowl for far too long! It had a bitter after taste which is generally the case if the Pistachios are too old. Probably not many like the Pistachio here.
The Espresso on the other hand was the opposite. Excellent flavours complemented the freshness of the ice cream. The fact that the Espresso Croquant has its own fan club on Facebook suggests that either people are crazy about this ice cream or Movenpick is! Eitherways, this ensures that patrons get the best of the flavours! Now if only they could avoid discrimination with other flavours, Movenpick would be my pick for a ‘preferred ice cream’ parlour tag! As the name suggest, the distinct flavour is that of coffee but there is vanilla ice cream as well along with crushed caramelised Hazelnut! There was probably Italian Coffee Sauce in it too but I was unable to differentiate this flavour (only got to know of the sauce when I looked up on the internet!).
On a side note, Movenpick is located at The Palladium at High Street Pheonix. The ice cream is expensive at Rs.120 each but if the flavour is good (like the espresso was), the money doesn’t matter!
